MakerBot ABS Filament is the best, most consistent ABS filament designed and optimized for MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printers. Like all MakerBot Filaments, it’s tested in-­house to ensure the highest quality standards and help you get the most of your MakerBot Replicators 2X.

Thanks to state-­of-­the-­art filament manufacturing and quality control standards, when used with the MakerBot Replicator 2X, MakerBot ABS Filament helps produce higher-­quality prints, reduce filament problems, and minimize downtime.

Features of MakerBot ABS Filament:
  • Because it’s more flexible than PLA filament, MakerBot ABS filament is great for designs that have interlocking or pin-­connected pieces or are mechanical.
  • When used with MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printers, it helps produce higher-­quality prints, reduce filament problems, and minimize downtime.
  • High melting point makes it suitable for machine or car parts.
  • Soluble in acetone, which allows you to “weld” parts together with just a drop or two or smooth surfaces and create a high gloss by brushing or dipping full ABS pieces in acetone.
  • MakerBot ABS filament adheres well to Kapton tape on a heated build plate.
  • Trusted by leading companies and institutions the world over, thanks to state-­of-­the art filament manufacturing and quality control standards.
  • MakerBot Filaments are guaranteed to have NO heavy metals, contaminants, phthalates, and Bisphenol A (BPA).
  • The filament diameter is consistently round to ensure consistent flow through the extruder nozzle and smooth, even layers.
  • Every millimeter of MakerBot Filament has been subjected to stringent laser testing.
  • All MakerBot Filaments are Triple Laser Verified.

Compared to PLA filament, ABS filament has a longer lifespan, is more impact resistant, and has a more matte look and finish.
